    I mean we all know it’s nate dogg. But it’d be fun for discussion to who got second. Revisit some old songs. Have a debate. (I’m leaving nate dogg out of the poll but his hooks are obviously welcome in the discussion)

    Just some songs to start…

    AKON:





    T-pain:



    Pharrell:



    50 cent:

    I think t-pain because he not only did it on hip hop tracks. He did it on pop songs and literally made a song from someone else an instant hit.
    He influenced a lot of people in the future too with his autotune

    Weird choice maybe but his hook on hey baby is the most catchy one for me.
    What about you?

    Nice choice. I actually completely forgot about that song.

    I’m going to have to go with “low”. When I think of t-pain that’s the first song that pops in my head

    I don’t recall ever hearing this version. But the same hook is on a proof song and easily top 3 50 hooks

    You mean you never heard Ghetto Qu'ran?

    The Proof song came out in 2005. Ghetto Qu'ran is a song from 50's debut album Power of the Dollar. That's where it originally comes from.

    Goat hook indeed.

    I just never really clicked with drake . Post some of his best hooks? Obviously I know who he is . I’ve played all his albums . He just never clicked with me to where I’d say he was a hook god.

    I always felt. And I know this is going to be a very unpopular opinion. That chamillionaire could rap and sing just as good as drake if not better . But drake had more money behind him (a lot more) and Cham looked like a burnt ninja turtle and lady’s love drake

    Out of that list has to be Akon. Even average tracks he got on he made the song sell

    Guy made Khaled's fat a--- so much money

    Right now? Drake and The Weeknd

    If we're talking about the old days, then Banks also used to have fire hooks.
